`That's just the way I am': metacognition, personal intelligence and reading
Metacognition is thinking about thinking and there is fairly robust evidence that an awareness of one's own understanding, especially in reading, is strongly linked with success. Readers who are alert to the problems in their understanding of what they read and can adopt a range of strategies to `fix' these problems tend to be better readers. Kathy Hall and Julia Myers here explore how such awareness works in one child's view of herself as a reader and suggest that such insights need to form part of a useful assessment of the child's reading.
